Lots of little niblets for you to sample:
- The power of the blogosphere: hiring Phil Fulmer as Tennessee’s AD is a bad idea because Spencer Hall created the Fulmer Cup rankings.
- Greg McGarity is ditching the Damon Evans approach to scheduling in favor of Jeremy Foley’s. (h/t Leather Helmet Blog)
- Maybe I should have thought of this before last Saturday’s game. (h/t The Wiz of Odds)
- PlayoffPAC is at it again. The best part is the punch line: “As to whether the complaint, even if successful, will help the PAC’s goal of a playoff system, Sanderson argued that “when we raise awareness about these types of irregularities, the need for change becomes more apparent.”” Yes, because if there’s one thing we can count on, it’s that the next set of people in charge of the postseason won’t be consumed by greed.
- I’m not sure if Georgia’s any worse than most schools about this, but Nick Williams is getting frustrated about being Tripped.
- Gary Williams thinks paying players a $200 a month stipend will fix something. He’s just not very clear about what that might be.
- The Pac-10 looks to reinvent itself as a post-modern conference: “Another concept to be raised is splitting the northern and southern schools but using three scheduling “pods” of four teams to provide a rotating schedule that would allow northern teams to play in California regularly. Under that scenario, each team would not be guaranteed to face each divisional opponent each season.” Why even bother with divisions, then?
- USA Today takes a look at student athletic fees.
- It looks like Georgia’s not the only team playing in Starkville Saturday night with an experienced offensive line that’s been struggling.
